Integrating Gold Accents Into the Home

Gold is a great color to decorate with.  It really makes a room shine, not only because of its metallic properties, but because it seems to go great with any color scheme.  In moderation, gold accents can take a room from dull to a literal shining oasis of a room.  It goes great with white, black, and colors.  It’s fast becoming one of the hottest color choices, especially for fall.  Check out some gold accent inspiration for the home below.

Wall Paper

Here, we have a simply decorated room that features a herring bone angular striped wall.  This design could be done by hand or with decals.  The traditional chandelier helps pull the look together.  This gold accented wall effortlessly gives appeal to the room by adding a design to only one wall so as not to overwhelm the room.  It’s a simple upgrade to the room that makes a lot of difference.

Living Room Accents

This stunning living room uses only a few gold accents to really make it shine.  Notice how the matching lamps, coffee table, and large wall mirror draw the eye to each piece while bringing the room together in one fabulous design. The large mirror is great for making a smaller room look bigger as it creates the illusion of space.  The crystal chandelier peeking out of the corning is also a great touch.

Dazzling Kitchen

This kitchen is beautiful.  It marries the perfect balance of white with gold accents and turns a dull kitchen into a modern wonder.  From the faucet to the cabinet fixtures and lighting, everything about this kitchen screams chic!  The island in the center is also a great touch and the leopard print rug pulls it all together.  These contrasting colors have proven to be a great color scheme in this kitchen design.
